SHORT STORY: I registered a brand new domain with cloudflare. Aside from turning on DNSSEC, absolutely nothing is configured. My DNS page is blank as the picture below shows. I only want this domain to provide DDNS services for some of my home resources. I’m fairly certiain I can configure DDclient on my hardware at home, but that is only one side of things.
Can somone please identify the minimum DNS records I need to create, and how I should configure them, such that my Cloudflare domain can provide DDNS service?
LONG STORY: I had my home router configured to talk to a Google domain to provide DDNS service so that a home VPN server worked. Google Domains sold to square space, and Square Space does not provide DDNS service. I bought a new and different cloudflare domain to start from scrtach. I created an A record and CNAME that I thought were correct. I spun up an unubtu server at home that I installed DDclient on. After hours of trying to get DDclient to update the IP address on a subdomain of my new cloudflare domain, i’m failry certain the setup problem is not in the DDclient configuration files. I think my mistake lays in the settup up of my Cloudflare domain DNS records. Either way, I’d prefer if any repsonses just focus on how to correctly setup a Domain in the Cloudflare Dashboard such that if the Cloudflare API or DDclient are used correctly somonewhere else it all works. I need to attack one probelm at a time haha.
